Sermon Discussion Questions

Sermon Discussion Questions from the weekend of 11/10-11:

Rewind: Legacies of Faith

How do you measure your success? What are your metrics?

Think about Joshua, Rahab, Gideon, Abraham, and Moses. What do they have in common? (Heb 11:13a).

Read Hebrews 11:1  
What does it mean to live by faith? Where should we find our confidence, and why?

Discuss the difference between how strongly a person believes something and the strength of what (of who) they believe in (Jesus)?

Pastor Randy said, “Everything on earth is a counterfeit of the engine article in heaven.” What are some promises God gave us? (Hebrews 13:b)

Pastor Randy stated the command in the Bible are never about getting, they are about giving. What does this say about earthly and heavenly metrics of success?

Read John 14:1-3
Why do you think this is significant?

What are God’s metrics for success? (Think about the Biblical heroes in Hebrews 11:13. Read Heb 11:16b).

Discuss this idea taken from the sermon: We are running a race! The bible says to run with endurance; it does not say we must win. (Read Hebrews 11)

Read Hebrews 12:1-2    
What encouragement do you take from this?

How can you apply these steps to Re-imagine your legacy:

1)      Run to Jesus!

2)      Run for the pleasure of heaven!

3)      Serve the runners still on the track!

Re-imagine your legacy with God’s metrics!

Consider this statement: Legacies are discovered by the observations of others – Do you move God for things or things for God?
